Couples looking to expand their family often decide to upscale their home in order to accommodate their growing brood. Those looking to buy Hawthorne or Morningside real estate should consider the following to ensure their new abode caters to their family's needs:
Look for single-level dwellings
Single-level homes benefit families with toddlers and young children who are prone to wandering. Minimise stress by buying a single-level house so that there no stairs where children could fall and hurt themselves.
Make sure there is space for your family to interact
It's great to have large bedrooms, but it is especially important to have common spaces such as rumpus rooms or living areas for the whole family to get together and enjoy each other's company. This will enhance the dynamic of your home and allow your family to bond.
Think about outdoor areas
With inner-city living on the rise, it's no longer a given that your new home will have its own backyard. If you are looking for an urban lifestyle, buy close to a park so your kids will have the freedom to play outside without travelling too far from home.
